Jan Ali (Y5) - Diversification of the English landscape through the cyclical occupation of physical activity and events

This thesis explores dwelling in remote aboriginal communities and the dualities and misconceptions that arise from the clash of two opposing worlds: the western dominant and the Aboriginal. Rejecting the notion of typology and solution, the architectural manifesto within is a comment on architecture as process, industry and product.

Rural landscapes in many parts of the world no longer exist solely for agricultural production and therefore face change to accommodate various socio-economic demands. In England, agriculture currently only accounts for 7.5% of rural employment and, with cheap imports and little concern for England to be self sufficient in food production, this is a trend that is unlikely to reverse. In light of this declining agricultural industry and the associated economic and social strain, the role of the visitor within the agricultural economy is being prioritised by local government and tourist boards - the English landscape redefined from a place of monolithic agricultural production to a ‘post-productivist consumption’ countryside. As such, through a broader understanding of the active cyclical occupation of the English landscape, the apotheosis of which was the UK stages of the 2014 Tour de France, it is apparent that this diversification is a trend that is beginning to materialize within an extremely complex and politicised condition wherein several differing rural agendas currently converge. In addressing the diversification of rural England in this manner, the aestheticization of the landscape, set within a growing movement for conservation and reluctance to change, must be challenged in order for the growth and longevity of alternative uses of the English landscape to be successful.
